Ocasio-Cortez takes spin in Pelosi’s chair to regulate over House

She’s already eyeing a throne.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took time off from warring with Nancy Pelosi to roost in a speaker’s chair for a rite spin as personality of a House on Friday.

After only 128 days in office, AOC grabbed Pelosi’s gavel and ran a cover for about an hour, apropos a youngest member of Congress ever to do so — partial of a revolution common by Democratic members as a infancy celebration in a House.

“That was my initial time presiding. And it’s exciting,” a 29-year-old told reporters.

“It’s positively a view. we wish we could, we wish we were authorised to take photos.”

AOC didn’t have most to do, though even so managed to stumble.

She called on members as they rose to pronounce — and misfired on that states they represented.

“For what purpose does a lady from Ohio — um, from Illinois, forgive me — seek recognition?” she pronounced as Rep. Sean Casten, a associate beginner Dem, took a floor.

Ocasio-Cortez also presided over “special orders.” Those are generally brief speeches by House members during a finish of a day’s legislative business, mostly on issues of regard in their districts.
